Nanny's Little Helpers - Catch Them Young
Ah die gut alt tags have returned with a vengeance.
Nanny has taken a little lesson from the history books, and is employing a rather nasty little technique once used by the Nazis.
Nanny's Gauliters in her local councils are employing children to act as spies.
Catch them young and they will yours forever!
The Telegraph reports that one in six councils contacted have signed up children to be "environment volunteers".
Sounds nice and cuddly and greeny doesn't it?
For you see dear readers Nanny's little helpers are being encouraged to photograph and video people who infringe local council rules; eg dog fouling, littering and Nanny's most heinous of all crimes...
As an added bonus the kids are being paid £500 a pop by some councils.
Seems to me a clever kid and parent could come up with a nice little money making scheme, whereby the kid's reward exceeds the council's fine.
Nanny refers to these new recruits as "covert human intelligence sources", they will pass on the names and number plates of neighbours who are guilty of breaking Nanny's laws.
A recipe for all sorts of petty neighbourhood vendettas to be started and settled!
I wonder what kind of adults these kids will turn into?
Ealing Council said:
"There are hundreds of Junior Streetwatchers, aged 8-10 years old, who are trained to identify and report enviro-crime issues such as graffiti and fly-tipping."
Some kids are assigned code numbers, which they use instead of their real names when they ring a special informer's hotline.
Completely ghastly and very frightening!
